Inspection and Audit manual
CSE has prepared an Inspection and Audit manual for Ghana in collaboration with Environment Protection Agency (EPA). The objective of the manual is to establish a systematic approach for carrying out inspection and audits while maintaining transparency of operations within EPA. Audit and Inspection are two different aspects in terms of regulation. While inspection involves a quick survey of the plant checking various pointers as per the checklist, Audit is a deeper exercise to identify and analyse the problem areas and find out measures to rectify it. Audit helps in improving resource efficiency and in overall environmental management in Industries. Till date, EPA conducts only inspections, however, with this manual it aims to focus on audits as well to ensure strict environmental compliance.
